Northwestern Medicine provides financial support to designated nonprofit organizations and governmental and public entities that are working to address identified community health priorities. Two types of financial support may be requested:
- Community sponsorship and donation requests are considered on a rolling basis. Donation requests are considered in amounts up to $9,999.
- Grant awards need to be requested within a specific timeframe. Grants range from $10,000 to $50,000.
Organizations are encouraged to apply for either type of funding, but they are only eligible to receive one grant or one community donation per calendar year. Applicants should bundle their needs and request sufficient funds for the year. Multiple applications from one organization in a calendar year will not be considered unless the previous applications were denied, and the new application is sufficiently different to better align with required criteria.
